Elite: Dangerous is an enormous, galaxy-spanning space combat marvel, but players have always suspected that we are not alone. Now, thanks to Xbox player DP Sayre, we have proof.
In a post on Reddit, DP Sayre revealed that he has discovered and recorded the first alien contact while playing Elite: Dangerous on Xbox One.
Video proof of the extraterrestrial encounter has been uploaded to YouTube and can be seen below:

This is the first evidence that aliens (called Thargoids in Elite: Dangerous) exist. While this video evidence proves the theorists right, it also poses further questions. How many different species are there? Do they all want war? Can I get me a sweet alien spaceship?
Time will tell.
